GPS Receiver Module Operates In Dense Urban Environments

The RF8000, a new global positioning system receiver module, is designed for use in asset tracking, telematics and automotive navigation products. The fully-integrated, plug-and-play, 12-parallel-channel module aims to simplify and speed-up product design and implementation. By employing a rapid acquisition module, the RF8000 achieves a highly accurate rapid time to first fix and signal reacquisition. The GPS receiver also includes novel, baseband digital signal processing logic, which aids the signal acquisition and reacquisition process. The receiver processes signals from all visible GPS satellites and withstands harsh industrial environments. The receiver measures 38 x 38 mm and costs $40 each/10K. RF MICRODEVICES, Greensboro, NC.
